The Hermit and Three Of Swords tarot card combination – what does it mean?
In your time of great loss, listen to that inner voice of strength.
Life: Loss and contemplation, reflection, re evaluating, preparation
Love: Feeling isolated, wanting to be alone, grief, betrayal, only trusting yourself, searching for your new path
Career: Difficult choices, loss of job, lone working creating a feeling of depression
Health: Tired and wanting to recharge alone, sudden need to regain health, slow journey back to health
Stuck in sadness, it is overwhelming to think about anything other than isolating grief. Hard as it may sound, strength can be found if you dig deep and trust your intuitive.
The Hermit interpretation
The Hermit pauses when it is necessary.
You have survived a whirlwind and are eager to begin a new era but first, introspection awaits. During a previous time, you acquired spiritual skills previously unknown to you. Now you hold the cards, you must await in solitude for your next move. You do not stand in darkness, using your light as your beacon of hope, radiating in the distorted sky.
Never be fooled that standing still means lack of progression or the inability to push yourself. You are aware that a pause like this creates the energy and contemplation needed to commit yourself to future endeavours that will no doubt see you channelling your focus.
In love, life and career, you consider your next steps. Everything you need is inside you, and when in a reflective state, you can search away from the hustle and bustle of distraction. In your disconnect is where you find and overcome any negative force that battles your current state.

Three Of Swords interpretation
The Three Of Swords suffers greatly in loss.
When darkness looms, you can sometimes prepare for what is to come. Like a weather warning, we can make sure our food is in supply, that our windows are battened and that our torches are at the ready. Thank goodness for warnings, right? On this occasion for you, there is no warning. You don’t have the time to ensure your heart and mind are secure,but you still have to ride out the storm.
This leaves you bewildered and hurt. ‘What ifs’ encircle your mind as you wonder how differently it would have turned out had you been prepared, but sometimes, what certain cards want you to think about, is what comes next, and how you can turn this into a positive. In doing this, you gain strength and a most certain lesson in life and love.
This could assign itself to your love life, with the potential for conflict or a break up. You are not seeing things as a unity any more and this is causing great sadness to you or both. You could even find yourself stuck at work, feeling lost or even experiencing a job loss. However you sit presently, you are hurting and things feel pretty hopeless for you. There is however, always hope.
